Do chubbers live longer?

We-non fatties will still manage to get more sex in our shorter lives though, so it all evens out.

Actually, if you know anything about the background to BMI, you should not be surprised to discover that those with a BMI of 25-30 are often healthier than those with a 'normal' BMI.

BMI is rubbish, it was brought in during the War for recruitment purposes as alot of men were weedy. Body shape has changed due to a better diet but the scale has not. Most rugby players would have a BMI of 30+ on the current scale and classed as obese load of balls. IMHO life expectancy is in your genes and worry is the biggest killer.

If its true, why do I never see fat fcuk pensioners wobbling around the shops? Or is that because they're so gross they can't get through their front door any more, so stay indoors being spoon feed like Jabba the Hut.

Does this mean that no matter how many times we tell Chubb to "**** Off" she won't die?

True, the recruiter at the TA unit I've applied for did all the measurements and weighing for me just before xmas and said my BMI is at the high end on the allowed scale but that I would be fine. Before I get called a fat ****, I've got a 30" waist and do a lot of weight training & cardio, but as far as a BMI score on paper goes I'm a chubber!

In reply to the thread title, I hope not.

Otherwise my wife is going to outlive me.
The thought of being around long after she'd popped her clogs naturally, is what has kept me from pummelling her head in with a Terrys chocolate orange over the Xmas period.

Had a pre-course medical back in the summer and got told the same thing "you have to lose weight according to this chart" a shame it doesn't accomodate us gym monkeys!
